I just watched Prosecuting Casey Anthony this afternoon on foxtel, it was fascinating and drew many parallels with this case regarding evidence in particular. For Aussie sleuthers it is on again at 2:15 am on Premier if any night owls are up to it.
Appeals are a worry in light of this case:
Wood's barrister Tim Game SC submitted that the jury's verdict was unreasonable and not supported by the evidence. His submission spoke of nine grounds for appeal. One was that the trial miscarried by reason of the prejudice occasioned by the Tedeschi's closing address. Others related to criticisms of Barr's directions to the jury.
Just wondering if this has been mentioned before as it is a little close to home at the moment. Lariam ,Mefloquine or any other anti malaria drugs, their contraindications and the possible use of it to surreptitiously destabilize someones mental health? Doc?
Not unusually, you are correct, I didn't quote from the Autopsy report, in my haste this morning I grabbed a quote from the link relating to evidence that was subject to legal argument.....would have linked it but I'll be buggered if I can work out how to do that with an iPhone. I'm very wary of attempting to debate an expert on something I'm far from expert about, and I am very conscious that I haven't the time to devote to appropriately considering the detail. I am so glad we have someone here who can and does do that for us.
I agree the "IF" seemed a very big one, I was amazed it had been uttered at all really. A moot point anyway I guess as he was found guilty, in no small part due to the work of QPS but also due to the minds of Websleuths members.
What that document I can't manage to link to described for me, was a far more intensely personal and violent attack. Good reason I guess why the defence acted to suppress. Thanks for your consideration Doc.
That is so scary! I remember it well,so similar..fingers crossed
hmm....not at all sure. My ex husband had a child with his girlfriend in his teen years, and the child was adopted. He contacted us at 21 years of age. OMG. He was a clone of my ex. All the mannerisms were exactly the same, in the same industry/career - almost the same job, most of the same interests and even though he was given a different name, his adoptive parents gave him the name of my ex. He even had the same inflections in his voice. It was actually rather scary. Until meeting him I would have thought nurture had a far bigger impact, but now i think they probably have equal impact.
An interesting book I have on Martin Bryant regarding "nature vs nurture".
Sorry if this has already been mentioned - I'm in catch-up mode...
Did anyone manage to get a full copy of the Missing Person Registers FB post?

Finally you are getting some rest.
Your dedication to Allison via WS is to be commended.
sorry Digitup, not sure what you mean by "eta copy"
"Last night Allison’s family told of their anguish at the appeal.
“It’s been a difficult time for the family, just let her rest in peace,” one of Allison’s relatives told The Courier-Mail. Poor poor family. How much do they have to bear from this man who not only thinks only of himself but also seems to care little for what this is doing to his children.
Not quite ...
OP was quoting thechronicle.com.au - which was itself quoting documents filed by the defence.
